Accused of intimidation, interference
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 14, 2016) — Attorney General Andy Beshear today announced the indictment of a Pike County man on multiple felony charges of election fraud in connection with the recent statewide primary.
A Franklin County grand jury charged Keith Justice, 50, of Pikeville, with four counts of intimidating an election officer and one count of interfering with an election involving a precinct in Pike County on May 17.
The case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Department of Criminal Investigations following a complaint received by the Pike County clerk’s office.
The charges against Justice are Class D felonies, punishable by one to five years in prison. An indictment is a charge, not a conviction or a conclusion of a person’s guilt.
